Melanie B.

Office Manager

I started working for Ross Dental Group in 2014 — a year of new beginnings for me — and have enjoyed every minute of it! I oversee the daily operation of the practice that pertains to patient care as well as taking care of all matters that involve operation of the office as a whole. I am always available to patients, team members, and the doctors for whatever support may be needed. I love working for Ross Dental Group because it is a Christian atmosphere. It has taught and continues to teach me to be a better person, a better listener, and a better problem solver. The presence of family and support here cannot be beat!

I have been married to my husband for more than 25 years and together we have two children. Our son keeps us busy with select baseball, and our daughter will begin working on her master’s degree in speech pathology in the fall of 2015. My husband and I love to travel to warmer climates in the winter, which makes us feel that we are somehow cheating winter by experiencing paradise for a week while it’s freezing, icy, and snowing at home. Working at Ross Dental Group has given me back the opportunity to slow down and enjoy life, and for this I am forever grateful.

I have been a dental hygienist since 1984, and joined Ross Dental Group in 2010. I am originally from Preble County and graduated from Sinclair Community College. The most important thing to me is that my patients receive gentle and thorough oral care that allows them to have optimum body health. I also love entertaining the team and my patients with my knowledge of movie trivia! I cherish the relationships I have with my patients and coworkers. Even though we are a large practice, we still enjoy personal relationships with each other and our patients, which really makes us feel like a family.

I have been married for over 30 years. I have two adult children, both of whom are married. When I’m not at work, I am active in my church and enjoy spending time with my friends and family.
